Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Dubai, then start your journey to the peaceful desert surroundings for a sunset experience of a lifetime.

Make your way to a camel caravan, and experience the beauty of the landscape from the back of one of the "ships of the desert" for about 45 minutes. Take (optional) rides up and down the dunes in the twilight. Then, go to a Bedouin-style camp for a traditional Arabic coffee (kahwa) or tea on arrival. Snack on rich dates and other dried fruits and experience a part of the desert lifestyle. Feel "Old Arabia" come to life in a unique Bedouin setting.

Take part in traditional activities to complete your journey into the culture of the Arab world. Try your hand at smoking a shisha pipe or get a henna tattoo on your hand. Dress in typical Arabic attire and pose for a photo with a falcon resting on your hand or shoulder. 

Feast from a delicious barbecue buffet dinner as you watch authentic belly dance folk performances. Relax under a canopy of stars, and get dropped off at your accommodation at the end of the tour services.
